To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A great series that on paper you might think wouldn’t work. All the animals / insects that people usually fear/ are averse to are shown in a new light ( Think friendly , loving cockroaches and the loyal bats ) this series follows one boy who thinks himself unimportant, living a sometimes difficult life. As the series develops we see the main character grow in confidence, find and fulfil prophecies ,which are life changing , and ends with his finding himself. A reminder that family comes in all shapes and sizes and that we are defined by our choices in life.
Read the Hunger Games series first & bought this to read more by the same author. To my surprise & pleasingly found this series much better, more inventive and really wanted to see where the series sent. Well worth reading the series in order.
Suzanne Collins has carved a dark and twisty world in which our humble protagonist and his charmingly cute sister are dropped. This series is aimed at a slightly younger audience than the more political Hunger Games, but the quicker plot and clever anthropomorphism make it a great read for all ages. We’re downloading the next one now!
I loved the Hunger Games and was interested to see what other books Suzanne Collins had written. Initially I was put off buying this book as it seemed to be aimed at a much younger audience, however I took a chance and am so pleased that I did! This book was excellent! Beautifully written and I adored the characters of Temp and Boots and the wonderful relationship they shared. This book made me laugh but also kept me up at night as I couldn't wait to find out what happened in the next chapter. I will definitely be reading all the books in this series and can not recommend it enough. Great read for all ages.
Great read, totally addictive and engaging story. I’ve recently stated reading again after being bought a kindle. And I love a good series. Having already completed Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, this is a fantastic series to keep me entertained.
Although I am quite old for these books I have fallen in love with them as I did with Harry Potter. the characters are given with detail and they build up as they grow in age and the messages send are exaactly given in such way for kids to get the message.definately I reading all of them!!!
